Hey Seth,

I need your help. I'm having problems with a particular player. I'm very laid back and things don't usually bother me, but this player is too much. Also talkin crap in games not just to me, but other players as well. Calling people names and just talkin trash. He/She is a white player. Name was Player gm but has changed it to tpnfrcgay gm. Now I tried to handle things civilly, I'm not a kid so try to be mature. Not working. I have no idea wat his problem is. Even challenged him to 1 vs 1 to shut him up, he didn't show. Now he is started to broadcast things. I want this player banned! I'm surprise that the server doesn't mute him yet. Please help. Other players have messaged as well that he sets goal to 50 then quits, and is very rude. Player9999 also told me to try to get him banned. Your help will be greatly appreciated!

hey tp, i can feel the frustration.. :) i've had same experience. he used my nick too, and swearing when using my nickname.
anyway best thing is just ignore them. confronting them seems to fuel them more :D good luck.

btw what does your nickname stand for?

Seth

Yeah, this would count as harassment and I'll mute him if I see him. If I notice anybody joining games and quitting on purpose, well, that would be a ban.

Thanks Seth! Is there anything you can do about his name, Tpnfrcgay gm? I have a few people that use my name, which I don't mind. I guess they are fans, lol sounds weird. But this name is not appropriate .

That's funny. People ALWAYS quit on purpose. That's how they play the game. But, good luck with that one.

Hey Seth there's this one player she is named Chloe and somehow she managed to jump like thousands of points. Just a hunch but I think she might be cheating. Maybe she is using another account? Also Nicholas the pink player was green the other day. I think he might have something to do with it.

Hmmm Chloe was the player above you in rankings last night Danny. Now the name has changed to Nicholas. Also Nicholas and Chloe are related in real life, brother and sister! Something is up!

But its seem like no one cares. Believe it or not I will not be reporting anymore problems on this forum, You report them and nothing happens. I warn people they will get banned ( for acting like idiots), like I did to player gm, nothing happens to them. They continue to be a problem and harrass people and then rub it in your face that nothing will happen to them. Which is true!

Seth you always mention that kids also play the game and we need to be careful. Well its the kids, under 16, that are the problem! The adults are very mature. I have not run into a problem player that is above 16. Its the youngers one that are the problem, but hey who cares!

Anyways I will be moving to London very soon for business purposes. So looks like I will retire soon. Had a blast in the beginning of the game when I was a noob, but now since players know me, its becoming not so fun. Will play a little more until I leave.

Sorry Danny3838 didn't tell you before but I just found out this week, ill be moving. Danny is my besties friend on Tanked and will be in top 5 soon. If anyone deserves it's Danny because he is awesome.


Seth thanks for the great game but the kiddos are the problem here. This will be my last post, have a lot of thing to do before I leave.

TP is my initials and NFRC is a company I own!

BTW I have multiple devices, iPad 2 (two of them), iPhone and touchpad. But I only play one I don't need to cheat! Thats how Nich and Chloe are doing it!

Also Im a very cocky individual, I did'nt get where I am in life by being bullied, in fact it was the opposite but not in this manner. Show me one of these kids in real life I will put them in their place ( which their parents should). These players that are problems just reflect to me what type of family they come from and I feel very very sorry for them, because I know what the future will be for them.

I'm out forever

T,
I think they have the internet in london...:)
hate to see ya go...but check in and play once in awhile. Or just play to relieve stress. Ignore the points.

I have found the more points you get, the less I enjoy the game. (not that I have that many). Oh, to be a lowly white again.

you will be missed.

Hey Seth people on tank are also talking about cheat codes. They say they somehow know them and get alot of points. I have seen some people jump in points but I don't know if it's a cheat or multiple accounts to cheat. If u could please fix. I love this game and I earned my points fair and square when people cheat it's not as fun. I sorta agree as u play longer poeple either cheat or don't play and make it enjoyable. No matter what I will always love this game and I will miss u tpn.

Seth
01-21-2012, 08:34 AM
There are no cheat codes, .. I think people are gambling and changing names and just talking about cheats to troll people... the only way to cheat is to hack the client, which hopefully my server anti-cheat will notice and ban.

Danny3838
01-21-2012, 03:53 PM
Ok thanks are people still able to win alot by gambling still? Or has that been changed?

Seth
01-21-2012, 11:24 PM
Yep, you can still win a lot. Some changes happening soon with gambling though...

Hey I am pretty positive that people are using multiple accounts to cheat by going on a low account and They play kn that to earn their points that way when they lose they don't risk as many points. Then wen they get even they "donate" it to a higher ranks the higher rank is just gaining free points without any. Work being done. I totally think this is unfair because I use my account and I risk losing the points all the time they are obviously not reading the rules. This is totally unfair and they are rocketing up the world. Rankings. Please do something about it. I believe they are brother and sister so they are using way more then one to gain points. Please either bann or have a logg in feature or something. Sorry not meaning to be demanding but this is not fair to hard workers.

Seth
01-22-2012, 01:09 AM
Well, I think the only real way multiple accounts can game the system in a meaningful way is by having dummy accounts throw (lose on purpose) teamplay games, while their "real" account is on the enemy team. Anything else is just going to not be worth the time... some changes to deal with that are in progress though.

Until then, feel free to stick with non-teamplay games.

There are no rules against multiple accounts or brother sister teams etc, gaming the system unfairly or throwing matches is against the rules.

Seth
01-22-2012, 01:27 AM
Well, after I posted that I thought about what you said and changed my mind, yeah using a low guy to avoid risk and trying to transfer points via private games later could work.

I think I know a way to stop that though: All private games would not give/lose points. It would be much harder to coordinate a point transfer then as random people would keep jumping into the room.

Seth and Danny,

I want to raise my thinking about this issue.
first, i admit that I am one of the players who 'donate' my points among my devices.
but I call it 'transfer', I don't think it is completely wrong, because all the points is hard earned by myself, i didn't steal and i didn't cheat to others and one of the motive is I try to protect my hard earned points.
The intriguing or annoying thing of this game is, at some point, the players started to obsessed with their points -- that maybe a reflection of real world, money, rank, etc.. and that become the most improtant goal for the game, you last a big part of fun once you have that mentality --- i think it is wrong, but that besides the point.
I think most of the less 'elite' players once their points passed 300, they have the experiences in vip room, (many are coaxed into it), the result is their points was ripped off mercilessly by the high point players (sometimes those HP high point players team up at the last moment to game against LP players), it might be 'within the rules', but it is not 'fairplay' if you are on the losing side consistantly and lost your hard earned points almost in a flash (most of the new VIPs' skill are also rough at the time). I experienced it and I don't want to experience it again, so i shuned VIP since then.
To transfer points among ones own devices is not complete fair I agree, if you tied it with the game context, but I don't think it is wrong if it boost up once ranking in one device -- after all, all the points was earned by that player, just like money, where in the world it bans to transfer money among ones own accounts?). But it gives a false picture of ones ability when he/she uses its low points devices when playing game, and as Danny pointed out, when you play like that, you loss less in a game, this is a 'edge' gained in a grey way ( I love it in the cases when I took away big points from those pinks -- payback time. After all, why they are there to play with whites? they wants to rod the whites effortlessly, now they are being robbed).

This game is intriguing in the sense it reflects so much of the real world and touches deep into human feelings and attachments. and just like real wold, it is not perfect either.

Seth,
By the way, it seems recently the 'lost connection' problem on iOS became so often to the point that it is very frustrating playing on iPad (on tp is ok, it seems). I vote this is the no.1 problem right now to turn away players.

AMAnonymous, i don't have a problem with that. BUT.. if you say it is fair, it is NOT. eg.

you have a main account that have 10 000 pts.. and 2nd account that has only 1000 pts to transfer to the 10 k account.
when you play with 1000 pts you will not lose as much as the account with 10000 pts.
so in theory if i would to cheat. i will just play with the low points account to avoid losing too much then transfer the point to the 10000 pts.
you see... getting to 4k is not hard but then when you are already have too many points.. if you lose it hits you..

BTW i don't do this as i only have a touchpad and an old iphone 3g ( that runs tanks slowww.. )

Simple solution is for everyone to just give me points. I am almost positive TP has codes for heat seeking ammo and unlimited health!

Hi, you know the two letters we all have which don't change with your name? I've seen someone with my letters, the only difference I can see is that they're using android and I'm using webos.
What's the story with that? 8

Hello Seth, I've been told duplicate id numbers are a result of running out of combinations? Fair enough, but I've noticed my cp fluctuating wildly and this coincides with the reappearance of another player with the same id. PO. Is it just paranoia or is possible that his play affects my account? Thanks.

If people happen to get the same name/letter combination, it doesn't really matter, that's not really how the system recognizes you, it's just to help people to know who is the "real version" of you, it isn't full proof. (btw, the reason there are so many AA's is because I had a horrible bug in my random number generator where it only gave 0 back for a day or two.. ouch.. but other than looking silly, it doesn't actually cause any problems)

I've heard two or three people complain of losing points while they are offline.

However, it *COULD* be possible that someone else is using your account due to an error, one way to tell would be if you kept getting "you are already logged on, wait X seconds.." for a long period of time. Does that ever happen?

Zed

That happens quite often, usually if I've been idle for a while, sometimes just when I come back from the tavern/store, says I'm disconnected then says I'm already online wait 20s, I don't mind that much but I appear to have dropped over a hundred earlier and it's a bit demoralizing, I know it's all a bit tenuous.. And just a game, weird stuff happens.

to be honest, i have a hp touchpad and when i modded it with android i got a two letter id.

the thing is, when i upgraded android from cyanogen 7 to cyanogen 9 i somehow got a new two letter i.d on my same account, with my same name.

even more than that, when i upgraded cyanogenmod 9 with the updated alphas and the nightlies i got a new two letter i.d tag again, but my name stayed the same.

just to let you know seth. i havent been doing anything dodgy, just updating android. thought it was a bit weird

I just upgraded to cyanogen 9 from webos and my two letters changed and I think I'm sharing an acct now. It often says I'm already logged in and every time my points and coins are different and I own different tanks then I used to... any way to get my old acct back? Or at least get a new one that's just mine?

This can happen when using custom roms on android, the only way to be sure you won't lose your account is create a TankID, it's free so I suggest doing it ASAP.
